Shohin Chinese Elm Bonsai in a .Trees are subtropical and can be kept indoors with proper light and moisture.They do need to be placed in a cooler area to go dormant. - Tree photographed dormant with leaves coming off for winter rest. Winter is the best time to enjoy the true mastery of the art of bonsai by observing the “bare bones” of the trees. With no leaves, the structure of a deciduous bonsai reveals how well the artist has created his miniaturized version of nature. - Chinese Elm - Ulmus parvifolia - General Information: Chinese elm is fast growing, deciduous or evergreen depending on its location, forms a graceful upright rounded canopy with shiny, dark green leathery leaves. elm is moderatly salt tolerant. Several dwarf varieties, sports of Ulmus parvifolia, exist which grow slower than the ordinary Chinese elm but it produces a much finer network of twigs and branches. It is these sports which are used for bonsai. - Family: Ulmaceae. - Lighting: Will grow in full sun or partial shade. - Temperature: Zones 5B - 10A. More restricted zones may apply to some of the dwarf varieties. - Watering: Needs a lot of water. - Fertilizing: To retain and produce small leaves, do not feed high nitrogen fast-acting fertilizers. Feeding three times a year is sufficient to maintain good color and healthy growth without enlarging the size of the leaves. - Pruning and wiring: Most shaping can be done by pruning. The bark is thin and may be damaged easily. - Propagation: Cuttings may be made from new tip growth taken in early summer. - Repotting: They transplant well. Use Hollow Creek Farms Double Screened or Professional Main Bonsai Soil. They have heavy root growth so must have root room. Be sure to add Hollow Creek Farms Micro Plus to the root area when transplanting. Pests and diseases: Boreres and chewing insects seem to be the only pests bothering the plant. Cankers may develop on young trunks where soil is excessively wet.
